Hill Close

Designed by CFA Voysey in 1896 as a country cottage and artist's studio, Hill Close is quite modest in scale with low stone tiled eaves hugging the contours of its heathland site with fabulous views of Poole Harbour and across to the Isle of Wight.

Many changes were made and extra bits added through the 20th Century. Morgan Carey Architects were commissioned to re-establish Voysey's vision. The original floor plan was reinstated, the fireplaces replaced and 300sq m of extensions stripped away. In their place a long low lead and grass topped pavilion sits back as part of the landscape with all of its service spaces underground.
